Overall I found the Crux Passport Half Corona to be a fun smoke. It wasn’t the most complex of cigars, but the flavors it delivered were very good. I picked up classic Nicaraguan flavors of chocolate, earth, and white pepper. These were similar notes to what I got on the pre-release in the 5 1/2 x 44. There was less in the way of citrus, and I’ll infer that this blend has begun to age nicely.

The one surprise is I did find the Half Corona had much more strength and body than when I smoked the 5 1/2 x 44. I assessed both attributes on the upper end of medium to full.
